Subjectivity in Stone Age art works such as figure stones, engravings, sculptures, effigies and curated manuports. See how images and icons have been realized in portable rock media since the dawn of humanity. Here, archaeologists and art historians are becoming aware of these forsaken artifacts. “And this our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in every thing." -in W. Shakespeare, As You Like It, 1599.

Jeff Vincent find, Mammoth Springs, Arkansas
This is a sleeping duck sculpture in this art motif already described on this blog. Found in a context of dozens of bird figures and sculptures in Jeff's locale, including as seen in the prior posting. The sleeping duck sculpture is photographed sitting on a large rock here. The duck has an eye and there is work to depict the feathering structure as seen on a real duck below. (click photo to expand)
